The best sound quality ever on a Digital Workstation

Powered by specially developed Yamaha technology, the sonic quality of every Voice in Genos is beyond any other Digital Workstation you’ve ever played. Everything you hear, whether it be the beautiful CFX piano, the lush Kino Strings or the punchy Revo!Drums, it just blows you away!

-AEM (Articulation Element Modeling)
This technology simulates the characteristics of musical instruments. During a performance the technology sounds appropriate samples, in real time, according to what and how you play. Samples are smoothly joined and articulated—as would naturally occur on an actual acoustic instrument.
-Revo!Drum/SFX
Revo!Drum Voices recreate the authentic sound of drums. Even when playing the same key multiple times, the sound is always of a different nuance, making it incredibly natural and realistic.

Effects

From Reverb to Distortion, Rotary Speaker to Compressor, Genos boasts unprecedented DSP power.
Using the same VCM technology as Yamaha’s professional high-end mixing consoles, Genos has the tools to create the perfect sound. Not only do the effects sound great, they look great too—with a stunning graphical user interface.

Content

Whether you create or perform music, you need great content. Genos features a diverse range of contents, starting from 1,710 instrument sound, 550 backing patterns, 216 arpeggios and more.
-Ready to go content
Genos features stunning contents which will inspire you from the moment you start to play.

Vocal Harmony & Synth Vocoder

You can automatically apply various Vocal Harmony effects to your voice as you sing, or you can use the Synth Vocoder to craft the unique characteristics of your voice onto synthesizer and other sounds.

Expand your music

You can continually expand the onboard content of your Genos by creating and installing your own custom or purchased Packs. The scope of possibilities for new sounds and styles is virtually unlimited.
-YEM (Yamaha Expansion Manager)
YEM is PC/Mac software designed to manage the Expansion contents for Yamaha keyboards, and even enables you to create your own new sounds and loops.
-Integrated Flash Memory
Genos includes 1.8GB of user flash memory with high speed reading/writing for your own Voices.

Recording function (MIDI/Audio)

Quickly record your performance as audio (WAV) or Standard MIDI File (SMF) with the Quick Recording feature. For more complex arrangements, Multi Recording features a fully functional 16-track MIDI sequencer with realtime and steptime functionality.
When you are happy with your recording, it can be stored to the internal User Drive or saved to USB Memory for easy sharing.
– Digital output
The new S/PDIF Digital output can be connected to compatible studio equipment or home theatre to output audio from Genos without any loss in quality.

High quality keyboard action

The FSX keyboard features a premium action with aftertouch. The keys are created in a high-precision manufacturing process for an incredibly durable keybed, enhanced key stability and “fast” action. The 76-key professional keyboard features enhanced touch response allowing for highly expressive and dynamic performances.
